Neal Smith Wildlife Refuge hosts Concert on the Prairie
The sun fell over the prairie on Friday June 7, providing a crimson sunset and a rare sun dog. The buffalo meandered across the rolling hills in the distance. Morton Gould’s American Salute and other scores mingled with the chirping of the prairie’s native birds.
This all served to paint the surreal picture that the 109 attendees of the Concert on the Prairie at the Neal Smith Wildlife Refuge experienced that evening. The event was organized by the Friends of the Neal Smith Wildlife Refuge in an effort to celebrate music, art and nature.
The program began with a wine tasting from Wines of Iowa and a guided prairie tour. Next was a special art preview by Iowa artist Michael Wilson, displaying his exhibit titled “Bison, Bison, Bison,” which featured the bison of the refuge. The exhibit was accompanied by a hors d’oeuvres bar by The Cinder House.
